education? >> when the state goes through a budget crisis, schools are going to be in the cross hairs. >> with two competing tax measures on the november ballot, what's at stake for the state and its budget strapped schools? coming up next. >>> hello. i'm al letson, in for belva davis. welcome to a special edition of "this week in northern california." with the november election just around the corner, the campaigns are heating up for propositions 30 and 38. tonight, we want to cut through the noise and try to make sense of what really is at stake for schools if one or both or neither get the green light. we'll hear from both sides in just a few minutes. plus, get some in depth analysis from two veteran education reporters. but first, we wanted to see just how bad the budget situation is in our schools. and how it got that way in the first place. pbs news hour correspondent spencer michaels takes a look. >> in schools around the state, there's a feeling that the ax is about to fall. and if and when it does, san francisco school superintendent will have to act. >> we have our doomsday
'll hear from both sides in just a few minutes. plus, get some in depth analysis from two veteran education reporters. but first, we wanted to see just how bad the budget situation is in our schools. and how it got that way in the first place. pbs news hour correspondent spencer michaels takes a look. >> in schools around the state, there's a feeling that the ax is about to fall. and if and when it does, san francisco school superintendent will have to act. >> we have our doomsday plan. part of that is lopping days off of the school year. and it can be up to ten days next year. that's two weeks off of the school year. >> richard caranza says his district, though well supported by voter-passed bond measures and parcel taxes, has suffered as the state's economy tanked and, along with it, state support. >> we are a bare bones organization. and we're just able to keep the lights on, the doors open and the teachers in classroom. >> californians are about to vote on two competing initiatives, 30 and 38. they are both temporary tax increases aimed at funding public schools. caranza supports prop 3
is recognize that we need to cut, cut, cut. and reenvig rate what our priorities are. the example is education verses the bullet train, i don't think that we can have both right now. >> thank you. >> mr. leno? >> yes. what i have learned through ten years of working in the state legislature, is we have a very serious and significant governor nans problem and that is two-thirds vote requirement on the most important issue of the day which is revenue. we have seen our revenue cut significantly by taxes that arnold schwarzenegger cut his first day in office. we have a depoll that prop is trying to refill it. we should not have to do it at the ballot box when out of 40 state senators 14 have more power than 26. 14 can veto when 26 want. i tell fifth graders that and they say that is not democracy that is not possible. that is exactly the problem, we don't have democracy on all issues, revenue-related in the legislature, let the majority party do its job and if the voters don't like what the majority party is doing in no one jerry man dered districts change who is in power, it is call democracy. >>
is the educational system. and california used to have an education system that was the envy of the nation. how do you feel we get that back? >> well, it is a tragedy that what used to be one of the top systems in the country is now i think, 47th according to a recent standard that i saw. the senator and folks in his party in sacramento believe that spending more is the answer. that is clearly not the case. i think that los angeles county they spent $9,000 per student in public school system. the average cost of private school $6,000. i support the voucher system that allow the parents to put the children in charter schools, private schools, what we cannot escape is that the school system is broken, again, let's ask the senator, why did the senator support, why did the senator oppose legislation that one of his fellow democrats proposed that would remove dangerous teachers that were convicted of crimes from the classroom and from the public roles? i would like to know the answer to that. >> thank you. mr. leno. >> the 47 out of 50 states figure that miss dillan used is not in educational out comes
figure that miss dillan used is not in educational out comes it is in per pupil. we rank 47th. >> as a result we rank 50 as the number of counselors and the number of nurses in our schools and the number of libranias in. you get what you pay for. >> our state has been starved for cash for the past ten years as a result of tax cuts the state could not afford that the prior governor put on the credit cards. we need to provide significantly more funding not only through k-12 education which is the birth right of every child to be able to get a quality public education in my opinion and to be able to pursue the dream of a higher education and that is getting further and further out of the reach of children in california because the state does not support education. we need funding, we need to spend it on education. >> so, therefore, do you think that community colleges should perhaps change their focus? one idea is to focus on retraining unemployed workers and upgrading skills for new jobs. do you feel that the state should encourage this? and how? >> if you are making reference t
, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. before i start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. this is actually about jobs and economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is to come and put the money in the communities. i went down there today and he did not say, thank you for coming

the distractions, and listen and learn and read and question more about who is really benefiting and educating ourselves on how we got here and figure out how each of us can make a positive impact, that's the way to change the system. knowledge sharing, truth-seeking, open debate, fresh ideas, and discovering a common ground among each other. no matter what your political persuasion, we are the critical time in our nation's history. it's time to take our country back from the private interests who control our beliefs, our opinions and our lives.

-centric for something in the future. to me, both of those reasons focus on this time of investing in education and development of future capabilities, tactics, techniques, and procedures. we have to invest in that going forward. >> could i do a short follow-up? what does that approach imply for the army civilians and contractors? do they become diminished? >> they might in terms of numbers, but it will still play a role. >> and how do you incorporate the planning of what those numbers need to be, particularly on the contractor side? >> you want to have the right balance. again, contractors provide us with its unique capabilities that we simply do not have. that is what they will focus on. we have department of army civilians that will provide continuity and consistency that we need. then you need our military members in order to provide us with experience, expertise, and frankly sometimes, just the validity of what we are trying to do based on their experiences. that is where and try to capture the right mix. right now, it is overbalanced toward contractors and civilians. i'm trying to rebalan
to educators if something like this comes to their attention. >> some jurors told the judge they taught the defendant had the best of intentions but there was, quote, significant disagreement about whether she took the appropriate action. >> thank you. tonight the woman whose video helped convict ross mirkarimi of domestic violence is ending her long silence. she released a political ad today targeting san francisco supervisor christina alahi. her!&ixg reelection bid, now, te alahi cast one of the votes that kept mirkarimi in office. >> voters need to know what alahi did. i live in district five next door to a convicted batterer who is our sheriff because she thinks it's okay to abuse your wife and run a major law enforcement agency. i'm running for anyone on the ballot but christina alahi. >> the campaign issued a statement saying politicizing thisyid issue is silencing nlrvisors in a way that is dangerous. sheriff mirkarimi says the ads in his words reflects politics of retribution. >> county sheriffs are worried they may not have enough money to run jails. the problem is that state h
of mumps outbreak. apparently it was a face to face educational message views among the orthodox jews. researchers say the outbreak indicates how close repeated contact with an affected person can overwhelm the vaccine. most of those infected have been properly vaccinated. the risk may be higher when the exposure dose is large or intensely transmitted. it may explain why it tends to be less effective. finally, trends in death rates for children who have diabetes. by be struck by over half in 2008 from 2.6 9 million in the '60s. better treatment may be responsible for that drop. the largest decline was seen in kids under the age of 10 but there has been a slight increase in diabetes-related death among teenagers since the late 1980's. that includes types 1 and 2 diabetes. doppler check out the and switch over to the computer. you will see what is happening on the radar screen as far as the scattered showers go in our area. looks like that is locked up as well. a look at the future cast for the region as we head into the next few days. it looks like it may well be a factor in the weathe
, , because i might not be able to take care of you," that is important to a senior citizen. on education, people need to really dig and find out what the educational programs are all about. it is more money and more money. it is all for the unions. if there were things going on in the school that the parents could see, instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children, and not let the parents have anything to say -- there are other subjects as well as the middle-class. host: will give you a chance to respond to some of her comments. guest: i think she is right. all the voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ads and build into the research on the individual candidates. they should come out knowing this country needs a change in direction, and who will create the number of jobs that are necessary. i think governor mitt romney has that program, if you look at it in depth. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years, the way this country has to do. also, to take regulation out of the small business community, so that our
't know -- maybe you can answer, maybe you can give me some sort of education on this. but for the most part, i mean, naturally animals in the wild do they naturally go after their own sex to reproduce? i don't think so. age sex is -- >> let me answer the caller in very direct terms. sex orientation is a characteristic of being human. i think put more simply, i was born this way no different than straight americans were born straight. one of the questions that i always like to ask people when we're having this conversation is when did you choose to be straight? people think about that for three or four seconds and they're like well i didn't choose to be straight, i was born this way. well the same applies to me. i can assure you that nothing happened. i didn't really have a conversation with myself and decide to be gay. god made me this way and i'm very proud of that. and so to the extent that we understand that the caller was born straight and i was born gay and we're able to kind of get over that understanding, then i think we come to an easy conclusion that we both deserve to be trea
closer and people realize we need to stop the cuts to education. >> reporter: i spoke with the chairman with the california gop. he said it will cost jobs and will fail and that prop 32 will bring stability. he said the republican party spent a big amount of full-time and money to get the word out. in fact the activist just donated another $13 million making the total contributions $36.5 million. now the goal of this statewide day of action is to contact 300,000 registered voters and so far in here one of these volunteers has called more than 800 people alone. in oakland, alyssa, hairington, cbs 5. >>> several are declaring states of emergency as a fearsome superstorm threatens the eastern seaboard. hurricane sandy is building strength over the atlantic ocean. the fear is as it moves closer inland sandy will run into two winter weather systems. creating one huge storm called frankenstorm. and for the very latest on say. let's check in with roberta gonzales in the weather center. >> 630 million people will be i want pacted -- impacted by hurricane sandy. which right now take a look at th
a devastating effect on education in california. >> if prop 30 fails, school and colleges would face $6 billion in cuts. the trigger cuts as governor brown is calling them. small business action committee is pushing hard to defeat the msh measure saying higher taxes will drive away jobs. >> for more, we sat down with governor jerry brown at kcbs myself and our first question is, okay, look, this isn't the first time that voters in california have been asked to bail out the state budget. why isn't it fixed and why should they go for this? >> the last ten yards to go over the goal line is this money for schools. it's an either/or. on or off. either money in to schools or money out of schools. i wish it didn't have to be this way. but at the end of the day i hope people know that 99% of the people will not pay this income tax. it's only 1% and what people will pay is a penny when they get a $400 cappucino or a sandwich. a penny. if you buy $8 purchase, it's two pennies. our schools are at risk. we have been cutting classes. we are raising tuition. we have been shortening the school year. i'm telli
vote idea. here is a way of spending -- let's get rid of elections and get rid of having educated citizens who are educated every two and four years. wouldn't it be easier if we had no money in politics, no elections, no vote counting. >> wait a second. the point here is actually -- i know -- i'm saying if we are worried about the expensive campaigns, i think running the popular vote election is more expensive. >> we have to do more than reforms as well. it's why the people who are push thg are saying yes, we need money out and people in. we need a full democracy. it's one part of it. i don't think it's sufficient. >> how is making every vote count going to cause more money to be raised? >> hold that thought. you can think about this. you can't think about the way it will impact the policy positions the candidates take. i think that might be interesting. we'll be back with more after this. that can only come from having someone else pay your mortgage for an entire year... this is what you'll experience if you win the quicken loans skip-a-year mortgage sweepstakes. up to five winne

of the other things, education, a lot of things that are being battered around, people need to really dig and find out what the educational programs are all about. it is more money, more money, all for the unions. if there were better things going on in the schools that the parents could see instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children and not let the parents have anything to say. there are also other subjects for the middle class. host: i will give mr. bennett a chance to respond. guest: i think all voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ad than delving into the research on the individual candidates. if they would, i think they would come out knowing that this country needs a change in direction in this country needs somebody who's going to create the number of jobs necessary. i think it gov. mitt romney has that program. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years is the way this country needs to do it. also, take regulation out of the small business communities so that our small businessmen, the real job creat

into good government. what we need in maine and in america is to invest in education, infrastructure, to reform our taxes, to reduce our spending, and to get this economy on track so the government can provide an environment for small businesses to grow and prosper and to help families get through this economy. the disparity in income is the biggest problem. what might two major opponents offer is more of the same. >> we have some business owners. does anyone want to answer? >> i am not a small business owner. i never said i was. i am self-employed. i am a free-lance writer. if you are a political pundits like i am, if you run for senate, you are no longer a political pundit. not only have i not created a job, but i cost myself a job by running for office. on that question, i do not have a good record. >> i think it is sad the recently we have looked at government services as being separate from competency. the u.s. senate is a job. it is a complex job. legal issues, economic issues, financial issues. i own six businesses. everyone here in maine and across the country talks about job
spending cuts that were baked into the state budget, $6 billion worth, mostly to education. should prop 30 fail. you look at the pomin ipolling,s a very potent issue and brown knew that and seems to be campaigning on it. jerry brown's been kind of his own worst enemy when he talks about issues about why you want to have this tax increase. go out on the stump, say, it's about the budget, it's about jobs, even though his ads say it's about schools. i think that's been a very fascinating dynamic here. californians sense there are a lot of things wrong, a lot of things they want to fix. does the tax fix it? does jerry brown have the ideas to fix it? >> and john, i think, you know, you raised an issue that also works in the presidential race. and that is one of the things that voters are looking at is the role of government. whether you talking a education funding, or on a national level, look at the reaction to hurricane sandy and the questions being posed to mitt romney about fema funding. >> belva: president obama get a bump and rating out of his handling -- >> in the last week, we've seen a
